As I have written in the past, I am not here to speak for or against anyone within political positions of government.
Regardless of where you or I position ourselves politically, recent developments within the legislative and administrative system of our country have raised several questions about leadership.
I have been fascinated with a number of quotes and principles stated regarding leadership and what happens when leadership fails to be trustworthy.
One primary thought I have heard for several years, indicative of the past few weeks, is “everything rises and falls on leadership.”
On more than one occasion I have heard various news reporters express the idea of accountability. Specifically, one analyst expressed that what leaders must do when mistakes are made is confess the mistake, take responsibility, and let the chips fall where they may.
A number of ideas could be considered and over the next few weeks we will examine several areas describing what happens when leadership fails.
Leaders will experience failure. How leaders strategically maneuver during these times determines the level of trust to be gained or lost by those who follow.
More next week…
